Kenyans have once again come together for a good cause and raised Sh1 million in under an hour for Mathare girls who narrated their challenges on Churchill Show.
The girls, who are part of a dance and mentorship initiative by an FBI dance crew member Moesha Kay, had in a video narrated how they are unable to go to school, attend dance practice and afford sanitary towels.
Two dance groups performed at the show hosted at Kenyatta International Conference Centre.
The initiative’s founder Kay explained how she has to use her income from FBI dance gigs to support the girls.
KICC chief executive Nana Gecaga started the wave of donation by pledging Sh100, 000.
Her pledge was followed by socialite Huddah who pledged Sh200, 000. Next came K24’S Betty Kyallo who pledged Sh100, 000 and a hair and beauty make over for the girls at her salon.
Other corporate representatives attending the show also made pledges.
A Kenyan requested that a quick fundraiser be done in the dome. Total cash collected came to over Sh100, 000 as the pledges stood at Sh910, 000 leaving the girls in tears on stage.
